    I've wanted a classic mini for as long as I could remember, and as I'm almost seventeen, I've been bugging my parents about getting one for ages. I've got some inheritance money, money saved from working and then I asked my parents if they'd pay the rest as a christmas/birthday/results present.

    They've always just laughed at me and I never though they were taking me seriously - until yesterday! I came home from school after getting my results on a complete high, and I honestly didn't think my day could get much better. That was, until I saw this in the driveway;


    It's a 1993 Mini Cooper, with a 1.4 litre engine (and a TARDIS air freshener ). I've named it Bert. It is the most completely, awesome, amazing thing I have ever seen and I love it to bits

    It needs a few things doing to it - new carpets on the inside, new seatbelts, a bit of paint work and possibly a new radiator - but nothing too major.

    So yeah, I just thought I'd share my complete and utter joy with you all, haha. Now all I have to do is actually learn to drive it!

    Make sure you look after body work on old minis as they tend to rust quite easily

    What an awesome present!
    If you ever get any problems give me a shout.
    A friend of mine has a mini on a H plate, he's currently building an electronic ignition system for it!!...then again he could strip down and rebuild his mini with his eyes closed, whilst asleep in zero gravity :p:

    Proper good British cars!

    Everyone should drive a car with an A series at some point in their life.
